You wrote, BTW: if you live in an area where you use the grill year-round, I can see spending that much on it. If you live in a part of the country that has "BBQ season" you way overspent for what you got.

FWIW, I've used a grill in the pouring rain and with snow on the ground. A grill can be quite versatile if it's near a door and sheltered from the worst of the elements.

With that said, I consider our current $500 grill (Was that the price aj485? Or did we get it for $400? I forget.) is quite fancy and quite expensive. It's also overkill for two people. Likely we'll never use it's full potential since we only entertain family a couple times/year and that's not usually something off the grill...

If money were tight, we'd probably still be using an old $100 rust bucket...
